Pellevé or Ultherapy. It can be difficult to choose between these two great skin tightening treatments. Although they may seem similar, however, they are actually quite different. Here is a comparison of the two treatments to help you to decide which treatment would work better for you.

Pellevé vs Ultherapy

Pellevé works by delivering radiofrequency (RF) energy to the deep dermis to heat it up and stimulate the body to create more collagen. The increase in collagen helps to restore elasticity to your skin and cause it to become tighter.

Ultherapy, on the other hand, uses ultrasound waves to target specific areas of the face and create microscopic damage to the deep dermis to trigger the body’s natural healing ability. Like Pellevé, this leads to an increase in collagen and firming of skin. Ultherapy can also physically lift the skin and help to reduce sagging.

Patients who receive Pellevé often require a series of 3 to 6 treatments, while Ultherapy only requires one treatment to see the optimal results. The results from both treatments can take up to 6 months to fully appear, and are not permanent. You will need to schedule touch up appointments in the future to help you get the best from your treatments.

There are similarities between the two treatments too, though. For example, both Pellevé and Ultherapy leave the top layer of skin intact while only treating the deep tissue. This reduces the risk of side effects and make it safe for skin of all color, unlike laser treatments. They can also both be used to improve the appearance of the skin on your arms, neck and chest.
